It is a constant struggle

Fighting you – Fighting me,

Living in darkness,

Striving to be free…

 

The chains are so tough... The road is so rough…

The joy and peace – it’s not enough

This stress is just too much!!!

Is this my fate or just bad luck?

 

Can’t grasp the door knob

Can’t lift myself to walk through

Can’t push forward…

Just won’t budge or move…

 

I sit, sit, and sit…

Watching people surpass me

Watching them get that promotion I worked for…

Watching them have that baby I yearned for…

Watching them get that degree I’m learning for…

Watching them spreading love to people around the world

All the things I want and need -

Not fulfilling the purpose I see for me

 

Quicksand… mud… tar is a better analogy.

Help me Lord – Save me from the enemy!

I’m in the trap.

I see it’s fierce face, laughing at me

How do I fight back

When I don’t believe in my victory?

 

How do I get back on track…

To help the babies following me to live right?

When all I seem to do is fight.

But my fight isn’t to win… But just to live!

 

No matter the good I do

People spit in my face

An open invitation of disrespect

What a disgrace!

 

The beauty in God’s creation –

The talent – The skill – The potential –

Is wasted on lack, limits and failures.

 

When will you WAKE UP from this nightmare…

And LIVE through God’s grace?

 

I was just reminded that you either BELIEVE god or you don’t…

You’re either a CONQUEROR or you’re not…

You’re either going to LIVE victorious, or die a quitter.

 

YOU HAVE  A CHOICE!

To sit and wallow in pity

YOU HAVE A CHOICE!

To use excuses of many

YOU HAVE A CHOICE!

To blame others for your loss

YOU HAVE A CHOICE!

To be the enemy’s minion, or be the true image of the High Boss

You have to CHOOSE either way - To fall or fly high

You choosing to just stay = Defeat

You won’t live, but die.

 

CHOOSE to live victorious

Choose to live great

CHOOSE TO LIVE!!!!!

And not let life determine your fate!
